True Heart Harron

I sat down to write about you, Bobby,
and I thought
"was any boy so prolific?"
custom made for the early days
with your sweet face
with your sweet nature

your story was so brief
and I think
the best parts were left on the cutting room floor

Bobby Harron

It's amazing, isn't it, the degree to which silent film stars are forgotten. Robert Harron was one of the biggest names in movies back in his day and appeared in 220 films. But I'll bet you could ask a thousand people and not one of them would have ever heard of him now. Pity.

It really is. Researching him was surreal; his credits just kept going and hurts to think that someone so beloved (and who ended so tragically) is wiped from the face of memory.
